What is 2 Factor Authentication?
2 Factor Authentication (2FA) is a method of establishing access to an online account or computer system that requires the user to provide two different types of information. 2 Factor Authentication is a great way to increase security while accessing your Deel account. It adds an extra level of protection to your Deel account to make sure only you have access to your data and transfers.
How to log in with 2 Factor Authentication
Your account will only be accessible with a randomly generated 6-digit code.
If you don't have your smartphone with you or can't access the code from your Authenticator App, you can choose to have the code sent to your email.
If you forgot your password, please see our article: I forgot my password. How can I change it?
